WASHINGTON — Less than a week after the federal government had to bail out American International Group Inc., the company sent executives on a $440,000 retreat to a posh California resort, lawmakers investigating the company's meltdown said Tuesday.
The tab included $23,380 worth of spa treatments for AIG employees at the coastal St. Regis resort south of Los Angeles even as the company tapped into an $85 billion loan from the government it needed to stave off bankruptcy.
You heard that on the debate, you wouldnt of even known that if you hadnt of heard it tonight. Hear is thing, First, Americans need to step up to the plate and pay there bills, Second-- If you knew you couldnt afford that 500,000 home then why get a loan for it. Thirdly--If you see your current job state, pick up a part time job at McDonalds or Burger King that will help you make your monthly bills.
let me guess, is this the same anonymous coward who said they were tired of hearing the poor complain? Phil Gramm, is that you?
what about AIG? don't you think they should pay THEIR own damn bills?
